Evening Other Victorians
- Words: Alexander Posell
- Label: Lookout
Evening takes the moody overtones of, say, Interpol, washes them out with the up-and-down emotiveness of Mogwai, and throws in a healthy dash of Radiohead's "anything goes" approach to soundscaping. With deep roots in the San Francisco music scene that belie their seemingly short three years of existence (guitarists Bryan Lee Czur and Patrik Sklenar have worked together for over eight years), their sound has evolved into a dreamy yet dramatic assault on the senses that evokes touches of everything from shoegaze to sunshine. Check the climactic tension of "Breast Milk Saves Sixteen at Sea" or the victorious-yet-melancholic "Darmstadt" for fine examples of what everybody else should be listening to.
